Speaking of which, SUNDANCETV shares “6 questions with “hap and leonard” director jim mickle.”
Q: What are three words you would use to describe HAP AND LEONARD?
A: Unpredictable, funny and explosive.
Q: What kind of obstacles will Hap and Leonard face?
A:First and foremost, they have to find the money. It’s at the bottom of a river. Early on in our season, they can’t even find the river, which shows you what kind of adventures these guys go on. In one sense, it’s Hap returning to his home base, the town that he grew up in. He’s waking up some ghosts along the way from his past, but he’s also trying to fend off his bad habit of falling in and out of love with the wrong woman over and over again. Along the way, they’re going to be scuba diving. They’re going to be fending off alligators. There are a number of odd figures that they will cross paths with. And there will definitely be some gun fighting… It’s a mixed bag of just about everything.

Q: What do you think viewers will find special about this series?
A: What’s unique about the show is that we introduce a lot of unpredictable plot twists that I don’t think traditional television series generally do. We are able to tell a much faster-paced story. We’re able to keep the point of view very narrow, which I like. A lot of times, television has to introduce a lot of characters to sustain itself. We came in very early on saying we didn’t want to do that kind of story. We didn’t want to do the multithreaded character drama. This is pulp storytelling. There’s an inciting incident at the beginning of the series, and events unfold based off that. I think that allowed us to take directions in the plot and create characterizations that are just a little bit different than stock television.
